Thank you for making a difference in students’ lives!
Every gift you give to Crandall University makes a difference in the minds and hearts of our students! Along with offering excellence in the classroom, we’re also doing our best to create a positive experience where students can grow relationally, and where they can be challenged spiritually to make Jesus Christ first in everything (Col. 1:18b). For this to become a reality, we need the support of alumni, churches, and friends. If you would like to help us accomplish our mission of “transforming lives through quality university education firmly rooted in the Christian faith”, there are many ways you can give.
Crandall University is a recognized non-profit organization with charitable registration number 106736150 RR0001.

There are many ways to contribute to Crandall University. Your support will ensure that the mission of “transforming lives through quality University education firmly rooted in the Christian faith will continue to be kept strong. Options available are:
Gifts of Cash and Pre-Authorized Debits
Gifts of cash and pre-authorized debits are the easiest way to give. You will receive a charitable taxation receipt that will provide you with savings on your tax return. You can either make a one-time gift to Crandall through cash, cheque, money order, or credit card; or you can give monthly through pre-authorized debits (withdrawn from a designated bank account on either the 1st or 15th of each month).
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of publicly traded securities are donations of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Since May 2006, the Income Tax Act has provided extra cash savings on capital gains for listed securities if they’re transferred to Crandall as a gift. Making a gift through this manner can help you avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
Gifts of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance is the donation of a paid-up insurance policy or the gift of a policy that requires on-going premiums to maintain. It is an affordable way to give a substantial gift to Crandall. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making a gift to further our mission.
Non-cash gifts are also known as a gift-in-kind. For instance, a gift of your real property can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to Crandall. Gifts of services may not be acknowledged with official receipts for income tax purposes.
Examples of non-cash gifts:
- Real estate (home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property)
- Household items
- Office supplies
- Tools/building supplies
- Cultural property (paintings, sculptures, manuscripts)
Gifts of RRSPs and RRIFs (Retirement Assets)
Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and Registered Retired Income Funds (RRIFs) often include family members or other significant loved ones as beneficiaries. However, if you’re confident that your family is provided for, you can include a charity in your RRSP or RRIF plan. A gift of your retirement assets, RRSP, RRIF, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift.
A bequest is a gift of property by Will. It allows donors to make a generous future gift to Crandall that will benefit the whole community. Bequests can be made through outright gifts of cash, through pledges (to contribute certain amounts over stipulated periods), or through a testamentary trust.
As a donor, you have many choices as to where your gift may be directed, and we encourage you to support areas that are of interest to you. Gifts are offered in many sizes and ways, and all have contributed to the success of Crandall.
- Annual Fund
- Scholarships & Financial Aid
“Spending of funds is confined to board approved programs and projects. Each restricted contribution designated towards a board approved program or project will be used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the board, the remaining restricted contributions designated for such program or project will be used where needed most.”
